XCP support coming to CloudStack in the next release

XCP has, in a very short time, become one of the preferred hypervisors in the CloudStack community, and for good reason. XCP has a number of features that eclipse even some of the paid editions of XenServer, and all with no annual need to reacquire even the free license code.

The XCP project recently announced the release of version 1.1, which has continued to generate a lot of interest and questions about when CloudStack will support it.  To keep pace with the rapid development cycle of XCP, CloudStack recently merged in code to support XCP 1.1 and that should appear in the next release of CloudStack. Of course, if you want to play with it today, you can always build from source.

The potential for XCP (and the sister Project Kronos which releases XAPI, or the Xen API, as a package that can be included in Linux Distributions) is exciting, and I hope to see XCP and Project Kronos drive a lot of the innovation around Xen and open source virtualization in the coming months.
